Identification

SageGlass aims at providing an elegant and sustainable alternative to conventional buildings' facade solutions for architects and builders looking at solving solar control challenges without sacrificing aesthetics, energy-efficiency or comfort. SageGlass dynamically adapts its tint in response to the weather conditions and the building's needs, to manage the daylight and heat in a smart way. Spaces always benefit from daylight and a free access to views to outdoors, without suffering from glare nor overheating. This thus results in reducing the building's energy use and improving the occupants' comfort and well-being.
